Ravens QB Flacco out for rest of season with knee injury
Reporting by Larry Fine | Reuters
The Baltimore Ravens lost quarterback Joe Flacco for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage on Sunday as they notched a costly win over St Louis Rams with a last-second field goal.
Flacco went down with a torn ACL, and possibly a torn MCL, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said after the Ravens' 16-13 win.
Harbaugh said Flacco suffered the injury on their last offensive series, which he still finished, with the Ravens winning on Justin Tucker's 47-yard field goal as time expired.
"It's just the nature of the game, man," said Flacco.
Clinton proposes tax credit for family caregiving costs

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Sunday proposed a tax credit offsetting up to $6,000 in costs associated with caring for elderly and disabled family members, and allowing caregivers to accrue Social Security retirement benefits for such work.
The maximum value of the caregiving credit would be $1,200 for qualifying families and is the latest in a series of tax proposals Clinton plans to introduce aimed at boosting the middle class.
"That will help family budgets stretch, it will help seniors maintain independence," Clinton said Sunday at a campaign stop in Iowa, which holds the first party-nominating contest in February.

1. Congrats to Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger on earning AFC Player of the Week honors. His 'backup' 379-yard performance vs. the Cleveland Browns got it done for him.
2. When Big Ben is on, nobody can stop him, and that's how he looked when he eat the Browns on Sunday. With him at QB the Steelers always have a chance to win.
3. So now the Steelers are on a bye, in which they get a week off before resume their season vs. defending NFC Champion Seattle...at Seattle.
